As many of you may have seen from our post last week Toysoft Development released his first app that could run in headless mode called Wallpaper Changer for BlackBerry 10 devices. Well the developer is still hard at work because he has now released his Profile Changer Pro app that also runs in headless mode. For any of you that may not know what I mean by headless mode, it basically allows the app to run in the background with no active frame and it will also start up by itself when the device is restarted for any reason.
Just a reminder: You must be on OS 10.2 or above for the headless features to run properly.
Profile Changer Pro supports three different types of profile switching:
- Timed Profiles – This will switch the profile on the exact time during the day. You can set the timed profile to repeat daily or weekly.
- Calendar keyword – Set up keywords in Profile Changer and then create normal Calendar appointments and have the keyword in the subject or note field. Profile Changer will automatically create a new profile and will switch the sound profile automatically when the appointment is up. You can even create appointments for a future date. You can change the appointment in the Calendar application and Profile Changer will make the changes automatically, like changing the start time.
- One Time Profile – Set a profile to switch for a specific time period from 15 minutes to 8 hours. When the time is up Profile Changer will automatically change the profile back tothe last active profile. Very useful if you don’t want to be disturbed.
Here are some additional features of Profile Changer Pro:
- Headless runs in the background without an Active Frame

This is a fantastic app that I have been using for a while now and since it’s gone headless the app is even more powerful. I highly recommend it to anyone that likes to schedule their profiles to change automatically at certian times throughout the day. If you’re ready to check out Profile Changer Pro head on over to BlackBerry World and download it now, it’s only $2.99.
Headless mode has been on every BlackBerry 10 owners wishlist for a long time now and it seems Toysoft Development has been listening.
